What about the Holy Spirit?

Great blessings come to us when we fully embrace a Lutheran understanding of who the Spirit is, how He works and where He can be found.

In defense of Mother’s Day

We should take a little time to bless the mothers in our congregations, to thank them, pray for them, encourage them and support them.

Jesus was crucified, and He hung on the cross until death — alone. He understands loneliness. He understands sadness. He understands suffering.

A Holy Week identity crisis

If we truly examine our words and actions, we are forced to admit that we have sometimes echoed Peter’s words: “I know not the man!”

Save the offering

Online giving may soon make passing the plate during Sunday morning worship services practically obsolete. But at what theological cost?

Love won in St. Louis

What does love look like? A husband and a wife who lay down their lives for each other. Christ on the cross, dying to redeem His Bride.

Let there be light

Beginning with its epic appearance in the opening verses of Genesis, light is a powerful image throughout the pages of Scripture.

We shall not want: On Psalm 23

The words of the familiar psalm are more than poetry. They are a confession of faith: With Christ as our Shepherd, we want for nothing.
